The schoolchildren have many problems of daily diet. Vending machines in school provide them with opportunity to eat junk food. But it causes negative effect on school children’s health. Almost drinks and snacks sold in schools have very little nutritional value. Obese and sedentary kids are increasing. Therefore, some schools reduce all junk food in their schools.
In 2007, British children loved foods that high in fat, salt, and sugar. And, a big health problem happened. The government forbade vending machines that sell such food by improving the lunchtime meals. In addition, it reduced funds of school meals to save money. Eventually, schoolchildren tried to make up for the lack of lunch by using vending machines.
Junk food companies can get profits thanks to schoolchildren. They don’t want to be disturbed by the government. Because, it’s free for students to eat junk foods.
Parents think that the government should give students healthy and affordable meal choice. Also, food service companies need to devise meal programs. They are nutritious and low-calorie and enjoyable meals for students. Fortunately, in the past several years, the awareness that reduce amount of trans-fat in fast food spreads and there’s a healthier future for school cafeterias.
